explore the world

with a £3,000 travel grant

£3000 travel grant

Apply for your dream trip with a free travel grant of up to £3,000!

Gap 360 has launched a travel scholarship that gives full-time students at 6th form, college or university the chance to travel the world!

We want to send three students on their own trip of a lifetime, giving them the chance to share their experiences and inspire more people to travel.

From working abroad and adventure travel to volunteering and skills development, there is a programme to suit everyone - the only problem will be choosing which ones to apply for!

Each successful applicant can redeem their travel grant against any Gap 360 programme they choose. We'll also publish a report of their trip, as well as pictures from their travels on our blog site and social media pages.

Interested? Check out more details on the application process, the full list of grants or the terms and conditions. Applications close on the 31st March 2017.

The Travel Grants

We have got three travel grants up for grabs at £3,000, £1,500, and £750, which can be put towards any Gap 360 trip, or trips, of your choice. You can choose any trip we offer, anywhere in the world, for any length of time.

The aim of the grant is to encourage and inspire students to explore the world and expand their own personal horizons, as well as helping others see the many positives of travelling for future life and employment.

Am I Eligible?

If you are a full time student at the time of application, then yes! The grants are all non-means tested, so any student can apply for them.

You can also apply as a team to receive the grant, but please specify when applying.

You must produce a report of the trip and take plenty of photos. No previous blogging or photography experience is required.

Who are we looking for?

We're looking for 3 students who are passionate about going travelling to go and try any of our 200 amazing trips around the world, from volunteering on a game reserve in South Africa, exploring Thailand, working in Australia or anything else you may have dreamed of doing.

The trip you want to do must be something you're enthusiastic about, and that passion needs to come across in the application. It doesn't matter where you want to go, or what you want to do, we want you to apply for the adventure you've always dreamed of!

We'll just need you to report back to us on the trip while your away and after you get back home, to let us know how much of amazing time you had, and we'll share you experience through the Gap 360 website, to inspire others to follow in your footsteps.
